Vancouver Favorite Tips by el_ruso
Vancouver Favorites: 318 reviews and 319 photos
Favorite thing: Modern apartment towers 'invade' eastern parts of the city as well.
Favorite thing: This public park is behind the Art Gallery on Robson St.
Favorite thing: The development in the SE area of downtown facing False Creek is called Yaletown.
Fondest memory: Watch for seals who frequent the waters of False Creek.
Favorite thing: The area immediately adjacent to Stanley Park is called West End, and is the home to a lot of prized real estate.
Favorite thing: This is major thoroughfare, and almost all public transport routes and subway pass by it. This street and other streets parrallel to it offer views of mountains behind the city. And the whole downtown is lined with trees and little parks.
Favorite thing: Intersection of these streets is the home to the Art Gallery and some of the most creative skyscrapers in downtown.
Favorite thing: Another fine building on Hastings, the Seymour building.
Favorite thing: I really recommend following the nature trail if you are here, since the views are very beautiful.
Favorite thing: This is one of the most distinctive modern buildings in downtown Vancouver.
Favorite thing: The main attraction on the Grouse Mountain, aside from the views, are the two Grizzly bears. They are very friendly, and it appears that they have been trained to stand up for cameras. If you come here with kids, this is a must see. Even if you are not here with kids, it is a must see, and one of the most memorable encounters in Vancouver. There is also a wolfs' den nearby.
